Neymar's time at Paris Saint-Germain has been unusual.

Neymar appears to have confirmed his intention to remain with Paris Saint-Germain after tweeting a picture of him wearing the club's kit for next season, accompanied with the message "Proud to wear the new jersey and to continue giving you joy".

Neymar is now recovering from a fractured metatarsal and is said to be on track for a complete recovery before the World Cup in Russian Federation, which starts on June 14.

And Neymar rejected the notion that PSG head coach Unai Emery ought to have rested him more often in order to protect the world's most expensive player.

However, Real boss Zidane played down talk of a move for the former Barcelona forward.

Neymar has unpleasant memories of World Cup injury woe, having missed Brazil's 7-1 semi-final humiliation at the hands of Germany four years ago with a back problem sustained in the last-eight win over Colombia.

Haas will also follow the same strategy, with Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean progressing through Q2 on soft rubber. Sergio Perez had a mechanical issue with Force India and had to retire near the end of the second session.

Although he proved a big hit in the French capital before a broken metatarsal at the end of February curtailed his season, the 26-year-old has been persistently linked with another blockbuster switch to Madrid.

"Good players can always play together".

Neymar has reportedly told pals he 'wants to play with Cristiano Ronaldo', and Zidane, despite dodging questions, hinted at his future transfer plans.

'Neymar will start his physical preparation with the ball tomorrow, ' PSG said in a statement.

Zinedine Zidane insists Real Madrid are focused on a third Champions League title in-a-row. "People said I was not compatible with [former France teammate Youri] Djorkaeff". On the pitch there is a chemistry.

'But I can't talk about anything like that [Neymar] at the moment, ' he told reporters. What's worrying us is what is going on at the moment.
